Tiger Genome Project
Open Tiger Genome Project (TGP):
An international and open project for sequencing and analyzing tiger genomes (and other big cat genomes).
Tiger Genome Project is a public service that is launched in order to preserve tiger, a level 1 endangered species designated by the Ministry of Environment.
Genome Research Foundation, desires to complete the standard reference genome of a Korean (Amur) tiger by sequencing and analyzing the genome. We are preparing a research on the genomes of different types of tiger and how they have evolved. We are also proudly promoting the development and acquisition of technology by analyzing the genome of a tiger, a symbol of Korea.
Let's save the tiger genomes
The project was sponsored by TheragenEtex, a genomics company.
